Do Two Things Really Well

By Strictly Business BlogNo Comments

It seems like every day a new marketing or social media platform pops up, demanding seemingly endless hours of attention.   I know I can’t keep up with all those outlets and still make time for all my other work, not to mention family, friends and the occasional 5 minutes of “me” time that my 5 year old grudgingly tolerates, but the guilt of failing to take full advantage of every opportunity has been killing me….
